The company announced on Thursday that beginning at 8am Pacific every Friday, the team would release new “Weekly Challenges.” These would be nightmare difficulty 2-player Story missions and 4-player Survival missions with various mods and tweaks included to keep the competition fresh. The two highest scoring teams will get their names put up in lights on the weekly leaderboard.
Using max level gear earned from the Challenges, Ghosts will be able to undertake raids starting October 30th with the three-chapter Tale of Iyo. It will require full teams of players but beware there is no matchmaking here, you’ve got to get your crew together ahead of time.
And their gear had better be right. In fact, the announcement warns specifically “you’ll want to have your gear at KI level 100 as an absolute minimum before you attempt to take on this challenge.” So you’d better get back to grinding through the game at higher difficulties.
